1960s Emilio Pucci Pink Floral & Ribbon Print Silk Jersey Dress w Matching Silk Chiffon Scarf
This is such a pretty Pucci print. It combines little flowers with a pretty twirling and curving ribbon that ties boughs of stylized leafs together. It is even prettier in its combination of pinks that have been used. Pucci chose to do the majority of his dresses in these silk jerseys because of the ease they have to wear and because the colour takes to the fabric wonderfully. Even after all of these years it is still bright and crisp. The cut of this dress is very feminine. The collar is gently scooped and cut into a low angled square across the neck. It skims over the bust and drops to a low seam just above the hips. From there the skirt falls to the floor, gently widening out just a touch as it nears the hem. A slit runs up one side of the skirt so you get a bit of leg showing as you walk. Each sleeve is cut to be full and to balloon out over its cuff. The curves and swirls of the main print are contrasted by the secondary print that borders the collar, cuffs and runs around the hem of the skirt as part of the design. At the back that same contrasting print is set in a wide panel that runs up the back of the skirt. It is simple in cut but striking because of the print and that wonderful colour combination. I love it. Excellent condition
Unlined and closes at the back with a hidden set, painted metal zipper. Each cuff closes with hidden set fabric covered snaps and they can be moved if you needed more room. Tagged a vintage Pucci 8. The fabric does have stretch. Hand finished throughout. I see a couple very faint spots that I have photoed- these are minor and get lost in the print. Please see the photos after the label shot. The scarf has hand rolled edges and is in excellent condition
